Science, Technology, and Society  (STS)

Important Announcement

An updated version of the Science, Technology and Society (STS) Frequently Asked Questions is now available and can be accessed via publication NSF 14-089.

STS Proposal Due Date Clarification Notice

Normally, the STS web site lists two deadlines per year:  February 1 and August 1. Currently, only the August 1 deadline is listed. The reason for this is that the solicitation is due to expire at the end of August 2014. The program hopes to have a new solicitation in place sometime in September. There will again be two deadlines per year as before, except for Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant proposals, which will have only one deadline per year, August 1.

SYNOPSIS

STS considers proposals for scientific research into the interface between science (including engineering) or technology, and society. STS researchers use diverse methods including social science, historical, and philosophical methods. Successful proposals will be transferrable (i.e., generate results that provide insights for other scientific contexts that are suitably similar). They will produce outcomes that address pertinent problems and issues at the interface of science, technology and society, such as those having to do with practices and assumptions, ethics, values, governance, and policy.

The STS review process is approximately six months. It includes appraisal of proposals by ad hoc reviewers selected for their expertise and by an advisory panel that meets twice a year. The deadlines for the submission of proposals are February 1st for proposals to be funded as early as July, and August 1st for proposals to be funded in or after January.

The Program encourages potential investigators with questions as to whether their proposal fits the goals of the program to contact one of the program officers.
